Here is a Defiance Jack that I picked up. The plane was in wonderful condition just missing a cap iron screw. This is more for the box restoration than for the plane. The old tape came off really easy with a bit of help from a heat gun. It just left a really nasty sticky residue. I just keep wiping and applying heat until no more came up. I didn’t really want to experiment with trying to remove all of the residue.
Here is how I held the sides together while I ran a bead of white elmers glue on the inside of the corner. I also replace some of the paper tape with some stuff I found on ebay. It is the real deal the kind you need to use water to activate.
